I wished I could stay longer. The room was beautifully decorated and I loved the bathroom. The self catering facilities are great and everything that you might need is available in your room. I also had great customer service from Deidre who helped me on short notice.

There are not many establishments that go above and beyond to make you feel as welcome as Deirdre and her friendly staff do. I thoroughly enjoyed yet another stay at 9 Fern Rest and I will highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for that ultimate break away. Professionally run, clean and with its own unique flavour added ensures that your stay will be a memorable one. If you are into birding, the night sounds are fantastic, with the owls and Nightjars adding to the peaceful ambiance. Thank you Deirdre and co, you'll definitely see me again and again. Glen
